That's the number of warm bodies who watched the Texas Lonhorns' drubbing of the lowly Baylor Bears last night. KU could probably get 16,000 to watch the team fold laundry on the court, and Texas can barely field a jury. Until UT can fill the Erwin Center for non-marquee games, and until the Erwin Center no longer plays host to Elephants, Clowns, motorcycle daredevils circumnavigating the innards of a meshy globe, and other circus-related beings, Kietzman's nonsensical arguments that UT is a superior basketball program ring as hollow as the hearts of the oil-rich UT alumni.
And all the money in the world will do nothing to change that.
That's why Texas is the flesh eating death machine.
